THE EVENING STAR. Thr RMlvrr on Rilitlnai in tkr Ak^licu Church. [London Cor. Chicago Times j ]l is strange that at it time, when, at tet't. political Oatbwlicity is oa the decline, it should t* in.<liiBfe great conquests in a dogmatic point ot vi* w Roman Catholic Clergymen connected with the oratory in Urompton anl with the Jnuit'* church, near Herkeley sqnsre. have told me that there is not a week in which they do not receive a do/en or more con verts into it**- cbnrch. 1 have reason to believe this U ttvf. Simultaneously with these unobtrusive conversion*, there are repe.it?*d notices in the papers of some member of th* Probestan aristocracy, or of the Established Church, going oxer to the Cbnrch of Home, and in the present week a paragraph appears stating that five young men. belonging to the University of Oxtord, went over to tne same Church. 1 am told that it would be almost impossible to distirgufb seme of the churches m Oxford from the Roman Catht lie chapels, and the same m ly he caul of several of the Church of Englaud churches id London. Tne Church of England is, in fact, so internally divided that it is a mat. ter of speculation whether the majority of its clergy are not nearer to Home than either to Augsburg or (Jeneva, or even West, minis er At the present moment there is * Seen controversy going on on the subject of ritual i*m. Tte Anglican clergy, in several instances, adopt many of the external forms of the Human Catholic worship. This gives great and deep otience to tne evangelical party in the cbnrch. and they, through their organs in the press, call on the bishops to interfere. Hut the bishops are even more divided in opinion tban the inferior clergy, and there does not appear te be the least chance of any united :u*tion on their part. It not unfrequently happens that the clergyman, to whom by the articles of the church a gre.it deal of latitude is allowed in the matter, gives ?uch offence to a majority of his parishioners that most un-eemly conduct take-' place within the church, and during the celebration of the divine offl -e itself. here all this is to lead to no one know?; but in the meantime'be Church of Rotne derives all the advantage from this division in tne Church of Kngland. Various efforts have been made to apply a remedy to this sta'e ot things and I>r. Tait. the present Hi?bop ot London, has promised to bring in a bill duriug the next session of parliament oh this subject of ritual>?m I do nottDink be will sue-eed, lor Dr. Tait t>elongs to a party in the church which is regarded with rtisfaver. both by the pn-evite and the Lvaugelical parties, namely, the latitudln.-tr.un party He. I believe, would open the portals of the church wide enough so as to include almost all Christian", irrespective of their dogmatic views. Military am? Police Pi:e? actions is 1 R k L * !? Li? Ftort ?f tk' He a clearance of Sup'it IS. The Lmblin Freeman's Journal savs:?If we may judge by certain precautions now o*ing taken by the military and police authorities. It would ?eein that they do not totally disregard the assertion of th_- lamous Head Centre that lb* re will be flgbt>ng in Ireland this year. The ordittuce officers are busily putting Beggar's Hush Harracks in a state of defense. The walls !>urrouudmg it are being strengthened in roanv places, and flanking projections, with numerous loopholes commanding the v.iriou? points Ircm which an attack might be made, are being constructed. Similar preparation? for defense are in progress in several military stations throughout the provinces, there being a large number of uien uuw engaged in strengthening the old fortifications of Atblone t'astle. With respect to the preparations on the part of the Metropolian police, they principally consist in a diligent training of us various members in the use of the revolver, all those not on duty being drilled every day to the exercise of it and toe cutlass, which they are to carry during this winter as in the past. The country constabulary have also got orders te perfr-ct their drill, and at the same time to redouble their exertions to trace ou* and apprehend all strangers a<.d suspicious charnc'ers whose movements are doubtful. Prom tbese facts it woi.Id appear that ibe name of .lames Stephens i? still snftioienMv powerful te create al:irm and rti?turbance in the minds of the government authorises. Divorce ix Cossecticvt?Twenty-one divorces were gtan'ed by the Superior i 'ourt for Hartford conttv. Conn . at its recent term.

It mav be well enough to change t nr divorce laws, which are very loose, but very much of human nature lireds changing as well " the Amki.ua> cou'sv at Jaffa.?Letters have Ven received at Boston from the company which let: the State of Maine to plant a colony in Palestine. These poor people first lived aioi g the sea-shore In tents made up of their bed-clothes, but th^ winds tore thes? to pie res, and ihey have constructed wooden hnts to live in temporarilv. with scanty prospects of anything better. Tneir poverty is at present their protection against the thieving and mnrrteron* propensities of the Aral-e, and there i-little likelihood that they will become desiraole subjects of plunder in that desolate land. Put they already complain of many privations arising from a changeable climate, bad water, scarcity of provisions and want of cash. Not a word is said about the surpassing beanty ot the -orange grove," "the early and latter rain." the three crops a year.'' and the --holy, spiritual influence'" of the ?sacred soil." t&"ln oneof the smaller balls ot Hostou there is on exhiDition a curious musical instrnmen t from (iermany called the orchestrion, like an organ in ontward aspect, and like a music box in a cylinder movement operated by clock work. On Saturday night the proprietors wound it up. ready to be started at Monday afternoon concert.but on the intervening Sunday tbe ball was occupied by a religious Society, and tbe applause which greeted a Reading from the Pwis," in the evening, jarred the instrument so that it l?egan to play. The piece was a waltz, and the audience listened in amusement, the preacher with consternation. Mo one knew how to stop it. and the bstmaie machine went on piayiug one piece after another is steady succession, until some ingenious sjmpathi/er with the interrupted meeting found means to get iuside and nnhook one ct tbe weight-. ?yA poor woman in Indianapolis, living alone with an idiotic child, was found on Saturday last to have become insane from the want of food. ttT A lit'le son of Capt Harden ef Cape Elizabeth.
